Speaking at the 38th session of the UNESCO General Conference, taking place in Paris on 3-18 November, the official said that the biennial will, among other issues, assess the compliance by Member States of the African Union, the Action Plan approved in Luanda in March 2013.

To the minister, this biennial is more of a pragmatic approach for the materialization of UNESCO's secular motto, namely "bearing the wars in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be erected".

The head of the Angolan delegation to the General Conference welcomed the UNESCO appeals to the international community to engage in the unconditional defense of the assets of the humanity heritage, victims of indiscriminate destruction, as unfortunately happens in various parts of the world.

The Minister of Higher Education highlighted the efforts made by Angola to involve the various stakeholders under the public and private initiatives with domestic and foreign partners.
